Sermon Notes

From the Ashes

In our journey through life, we often encounter moments where everything seems to crumble to ashes. We may feel broken, shattered, and utterly defeated. But here's the incredible truth - through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are offered a chance to experience a new beginning, to rise from the ashes of our past. This upcoming 6-week series is designed to guide us towards resurrection Sunday (Easter) with renewed hope and faith. Whether you are a new believer taking your first steps or a seasoned follower seeking to deepen your understanding of Christ, this series promises to be a transformative and enriching experience. Join us on this journey from ashes to life, and let the resurrection power of Jesus bring new meaning and purpose to your life.
